Reviews and Endorsements

'The examples here - each of them - are little gems, beautifully weaving together theory with life and with much that is illustrated through this.'
- Patrick J. Casement, author of Learning from Life: Becoming a Psychoanalyst and Learning from Our Mistakes: Beyond Dogma in Psychoanalysis and Psychotherapy

'Sensitive, accessible, wise, and deeply moving, this book is original and exceptional. The text is expansive and covers a vast range of theoretical territory. The writing is excellent and delightful, featuring stories full of surprise and intrigue. The theoretical explanations complete the package. A must for all who take the journey of self-knowledge and for anyone curious about what makes people tick.'
- Jane Hall, New York School for Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis, author of Roadblocks on the Journey of Psychotherapy

'The story and analysis are really quite wonderful. I loved reading both - and especially enjoyed the way the story unfolds through analysis, which is quite sophisticated and, on a personal level, touching and nicely written.'
- Brian Rasmussen, University of British Columbia, Okanagan

'This is going to be a book that people will love - both students of analysis and the general public. The vignettes are charming and the explanations, which deal with complex concepts, are masterfully simple and clear. The writing is entertaining and a pleasure - a fun read and rare, I'm sure, for books on analysis.'
- Sara Mansfield Taber, author of Bread of Three Rivers: The Story of a French Loaf
